Like most cuckoos, the African emerald cuckoo (Chrysococcyx cupreus) is a brood parasite. Female African emerald cuckoos lay eggs in the nests of other bird species. A female cuckoo can lay between 19-25 eggs on average per breeding season. The breeding season occurs during the rainy seasons, generally during the months between September and March. Even though the cuckoo do not need territory (animal) to feed fledglings, male African emerald cuckoos still maintain a territory to display itself to potential mates.
